EU. In or Out?

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 08:40

My problem is that I don't trust ANY politician to tell the truth, so how do I actually obtain the facts about the potential benefits / issues of either choice?

Gravel bed , advice please

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 08:37

Immediate thoughts are that new gravel on existing gravel will settle much more than new gravel laid over slabs.  Unless you completely slab the area you are going to have problems with uneven settling over time.  Also, gravel tends to be laid to allow free drainage of the area, laying slabs will defeat the object.

Noisy children

I can definitely sympathise with your problem.  We had the same for 3 or 4 years.  All through the summer in the garden of a house behind us there were children playing but one of them used to scream at the top of their voice all the time.  High, piercing and actually uncomfortable.  Thankfully they moved!.

Other than a complaint to the council there's little you can do.

All I can suggest is trying an internet search to look for diagrams of the linkage.  Other than that it will be a trip to the tip or a garden machinery repair shop.

To be honest it isn't the sort of thing I would want in my garden, but each to their own.  It would be a boring old world if we all liked the same things.

If you mean companies who will rip out entire hedges, or part of a hedge, and remove, then look for garden maintenance firms as Ladybird4 says.  If you are just talking about trimmings whre you have cut back the hedge then I suspect you will have to get rid of it yourself.

Does the site have 'stickies'?

KT53 - we do indeed have the functionality for sticky posts. Alas, it seems we've now spotted another bug - the sticky posts are no longer sticky... Thank you for the heads up.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Trying to get some gardening done but some of the ground is like a paddy field.  I left a bucket outside on Tuesday night, and it now has over 2" of water in it.

Horticultural grit spread around the plants will also discourage slugs and snails.  Sprinkle slug pellets on the grit and you will stop most of the blighters.
